A lot of people loved George H.W. before his presidency because he promised the people that there would be no new taxes, but that changed once he was actually elected. He quickly lost his popularity with his weak economic strategies. He did however exceed in foreign affairs.

  2. Invaded Panama in 1989 to oust leader and drug trafficker Manuel Noriega
  3. Signed the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibiting discrimination based on disabilities

  2. Failure to deal with China and Tiananmen Square
  3. Pardon of the Iran Contra criminals

Can He Serve Today?

I think that George H.W. is electable today because there are many global affairs that we are apart of and since he succeeded in dealing with them appropriately during his presidency, maybe he could help us out today. I don't think that him inducing new taxes was a horrible horrible thing because he was doing what he thought was best and as president not everyone is going to like what he does 100% of the time.
